Nya regler i sjukförsäkringen - fler personer i utanförskap?
Sammanfattning: The purpose of this paper is to study the rules of the bill 2007/08: 136 "A reformed sick-leave process of increased return to work" as related to the rehabilitation chain. In the interpretation of the material I have used the “practical legal method” and a minor empirical study has been conducted to find out how Region Skåne and UMAS adjust their activities to the new regulations. The government aims to reduce sick leave and on March 19, 2008, the above mentioned bill was presented to the Riksdag. The bill is a part of the government's package of measures and contains proposals for a revised sick-leave process. The rehabilitation chain is a part of the package and includes actions with a tighter schedule. The employer is still after the new rules playing a central role in the sick-leave process and must through early and continuous contact with the workers start the rehabilitation process. The deadlines of the rehabilitation chain will mean differences for the individual who will need to take greater responsibility in his or hers rehabilitation process earlier. Försäkringskassan must now speed up the handling of the various rehabilitation cases and cooperate with Arbetsförmedlingen earlier. The deadlines of the Rehabilitation chain means that sick people must come to care for an assessment earlier. In order to get quick access to health care in Sweden we have the national health care guarantee for help. I have concluded that the long queues that are awaiting care can create problems for individual patients in the rehabilitation chain. In Sweden we have problems with long-term sick leave, maybe it’s a consequence of that we have not had any ulterior limit to how long a person can receive cash benefits?
